Well made but not especially memorable.
3 November 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Litigante" is sort of like a reworking of "Terms of Endearment". However, instead of a fake happy Hollywood ending (which never felt true to me when I saw it), the film goes for realism. The story is about a dying mother in Columbia and her daughter who constantly argues with her about just about everything. By the end of the story, the mother dies and the daughter seems to have learned nothing about her mother or herself. Realistic? Yes....but not especially enjoyable to watch...especially since I had a hard time connecting with the characters or caring about them. I think, in the end, I wanted realism BUT something more.
